Sourdough Bread: An Epic, Ongoing Tale

I love baking bread. It is therapeutic to knead the dough, and to shape it. It is amazing to watch it as it grows in size, and then becomes golden brown in the oven. Not to mention, there is nothing more comforting than a slice of warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven bread with butter. Eat it by itself,…
